1992 NBA Playoffs


1992 NBA Playoffs

The 1992 NBA Playoffs was the postseason tournament following the National Basketball Association's 1991-1992 season. The tournament concluded with the Eastern Conference champion Chicago Bulls winning their second consecutive NBA championship by defeating the Western Conference champion Portland Trail Blazers four games to two. Bulls superstar Michael Jordan won his second NBA Finals MVP award.

The Trail Blazers won their second Western Conference title in the past three years, third overall in franchise history, behind the leadership of Clyde Drexler.

The Utah Jazz made it to the Western Conference finals for the first time in their 17-year franchise history. They would return in 1994 and 1996 before finally breaking through to the NBA Finals in 1997 and 1998.

The fourth-year Miami Heat became the first of the 1988 and '89 expansion teams (the Orlando Magic, Minnesota Timberwolves and Charlotte Hornets were the other three) to make the playoffs, though they were swept in the first round by the Bulls. In 2006 the Heat would become the first of these teams to win the NBA championship.

The Los Angeles Clippers made it to the playoffs for the first time since 1976, when they were the Buffalo Braves.
